Thai coach spotted dressed as ‘woman’ watching women’s Kabaddi in Iran; so what happened next

A Thai coach had to ‘apologize’ after he was spotted dressed as ‘woman’ and watching female Kabaddi matches at the Asian Kabaddi Championship held in Iran.

As per reports, even the Iran Kabbadi Federation has lashed out at the one of the coaches of the Thailand team after he reportedly dressed as a woman and sneaked into the arena.

Photos of the coach have been circulated through social media, and it shows him wearing what is a makeshift hijab. In some pictures he wears a black head gear while in other pictures he has a white towel around his head. According to some reports he was asked to leave once before he managed to find a way back in.

The Iranian media have identified the man, who was wearing a Thai sports kit, as the coach of Thailand’s team.

In a statement, the Iranian federation said the incident was “unjustifiable” and that the man had “violated the rules of host country”.

The Islamic Republic of Iran bans men and the media from attending female sporting events, where the strict requirements for women to wear headscarves in public are lifted.
